We have a variety of drilling methods for various geological conditions:
- Reverse circulation rotary – Used for large diameter water well drilling generally in soft and unconsolidated formations. This method also puts less pressure on the formation wall and therefore improves development of the well on completion.
- Direct flush rotary using mud, air, water and foam – Normally used in smaller diameter borehole drilling at depths down to 900m and in all formation desities from unconsolidated to hard rock drilling.
- Cable tool percussion drilling – appropriate where water for drilling is not available. In soft formation, this method of drilling is very efficient.
- Down the hole hammer rotary – for hard rock drilling
- Rotary auger, continuous flight and bucket – used in soft formations for example, piling, soakaway, boreholes, drilling, top hole to start large diameter flooded reverse drilling
Commercial Water Boreholes
Along with private customers, we have worked extensively with public water supply companies, farmers, hoteliers and companies requiring a private supply. We drill and maintain water boreholes for many of the UK’s water supply companies.
